Law Enforcement

3D laser scanners, such as those from FARO®, provide law enforcement officers such as police and other crime scene investigators with a portable way to capture accurate details of a scene for accident investigation and crime scene reconstruction. Traffic is not disrupted after the accident and evidence is recorded without compromising a crime scene.

The level of precision and detail collected from the 3D laser scanning solutions allows investigators to create an accurate 3D model of the scene for later analysis, such as the extraction of exact measurements or the creation of 3D simulations of accidents and crimes for use in litigation.

Modern-day Sherlock Holmes — Where 3D Scanning Technology Meets Forensic Science

Public Safety: Southern Medical University
Established in 2005, the Center of Forensic Science at Southern Medical University in China is a state-approved, large-scale forensic science institution set up by the Guangdong Province Department of Justice. The center’s Research Institute of Forensic Science Technologies for Traffic Accidents has been using 3D scanning technology in the investigation of traffic accidents, and has established itself as the country’s leading authority through its continuous extensive exploration of the subject matter.

FARO Partners Tongji University in Accident Reconstruction Studies

Education/Research: Tongji University
Accident reconstructionist generally agree that four factors are at play when analyzing any given collision: human, vehicle, road and environment. The availability of precise, comprehensive data is fundamental to the accurate analysis of the accident.
